romney was telling all these lies, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put
't think it tells us much that many people didn't already think about president obama. he has become much more sophisticated in these arguments. but i think at the end of the day, he is making a similar argument today, high is, effect in effect, pretty open about the class warfare argument. it is not as explicit, but the philosophy is the same. this doesn't surprise me to see this. >> the national attitudes are set on president obottom a. people have seen him come into their living room, ever day for four years. they have a sense of who he is as a person. so as these videos come out, it is going to be hard for them to really shake things up with the independent and swing voters, which are who matters in november. >> it is not only rich and poor, it is black and white as well. he makes specific racial arguems. in ept -- 2002, the time of enron, everybody's talking about enron. he talks about enron, using tax accountants and tax loopholes to make money and -- and... and mistreat employees. he said, it's not the equivalent of dogs and fire hoses, but i am not saying what enron executives did
accident there's also conversations about an obama flip-flop as well. tell me about that. >> this is kind of a flip-flop, i would say, on enthusiasm or tone. i think whether we were watching president obama on wednesday, it was very much a passive president obama. certainly wasn't what i was expecting, having been object the campaign trail with president obama. he campaigned yesterday in denver in wisconsin and really fired up and really calling mitt romney on what he saw smas of his inconsistencies during the debate. the problem is 67 million-plus people watched that debate. that was really the place where he needed to call mitt romney out. i guarantee you not that many people saw his comments from yesterday. even close to the dab. >> nowhere near that amount. brianna keilar. let me ask you a quick question about the jobs numbers. we are expecting those at 8:30. it might be the most watched job numbers before the election, i would guess. >> that's right. we are watching them and remember they also come out that friday before the election. so we will be watching that as well. this is numb
a poll tells us happened last night. it showed us that basically nothing happened that today in the poll taken today that president obama has gone up one point. that is movement within the margin of error and means nothing. the den vver post head line tod uses a boxing analogy round one. the reporter who wrote the front-page story switches to another sport bull fighting, in the first paragraph of his article it is perfect. republican nominee charged at president obama, at the university of denver on wednesday, in a clash that was notable for romney's aggressiveness in a direct night. here is the great part like a bull to a matador. romney time and again turned toward obama to the tax po portraying him hopeless in trying to turn the economy around. like a bull to a matador turned to obama to deliver attacks. like a bull to a matador. and what does a matador do to a bull in the end? hey. hey eddie. i brought your stuff. you don't have to do this. yes i do. i want you to keep this. it'd be weird. take care. you too. [ sighs ] so how did it go? he's upset. [ male announcer ] spend less time
point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether they have a job, whether they know somebody unemployed and this is very abstract. so people are still hurting. but in terms of the political gamesmanship, 8% is an important marker because when the president passed the stimulus, one of his economists projected, it wasn't a promise, but a projection that 8% would be -- we would not be above 8% with the stimulus and because we were for so long, republicans were able to say the stimulus didn't work, now they can say, look, there is evidence that political football can maybe go away for now. >> jessica yellin, thank you. that's one interpretation of today's number. let's get t
billion more than your plan, obama. and by the way, we're going to spend $2 trillion more on defense. so far romney's saying we're going to spend more than democrats. >> and no revenue. >> let me tell you how we know he's secure with his debate. debate night he talked about romney care, the plan he passed in massachusetts and the next day he went to sea pack and got a hero's welcome. guys, the base is okay. >> the counties in this country with the highest percent of medicare recipient are republican counties. of the 47% he talks about, romney will get half of them. >> 47% don't know they're in that 47%. >> they don't identify themselves as victims. >> right. >> congressman, the problem is the margin republicans ran with seniors in '08, that margin is shrinking right now. that's really problematic for states like florida. >> bottom line is politics is perception. people when they hear a politician say something in private like that, you can't really walk it back. you can't walk it back a month later. there's another number though that came out today, we're talking 47%. and that is 7.8%. c
